Rethink your Canadian Bias in Investing

In this episode, we continue our in-depth look at international diversification strategies for Canadians. Building on last week’s conversation, today we ask the burning question: How much should you invest in different global markets – US, International or Emerging Markets? We dive into the nuances of valuations and expected returns adding clarity and confidence in global diversified portfolios.

Learn why Canadians should rethink their home bias in investing, especially when our national market constitutes just 3% of the global stock market. We also revisit Vanguard’s recommendation that 70% of your equity holdings should be invested outside of Canada. Discover the critical interplay between valuations and historical returns, helping you understand and embrace an investment strategy that is truly global and diversified.

Join Keith and Marcelo as they guide you through the maze of international investing backed by the latest research and expert opinions.
